If youâre a fan of easter eggs hidden in source code, this is a pretty good one. Apparently, as Washington Post data reporterÂ Christopher Ingraham observed on Twitter, some Trump administration and GOP websites have a portion of code with a joke that throws shade at Obamaâs golf habits, the irony nowhere to be found.
We checked the source code and sure enough the line âOops! Something went wrong. Unlike Obama, we are working to fix the problemâ¦ and not on the golf courseâÂ appears on action.donaldjtrump.com sites, like the one hosting this surely statistically sound, Obama-obsessed âInaugural Year Approval Poll,â but not onÂ donaldjtrump.com pages.
As Ingraham pointed out, itâs also present on some official GOP sites, including the GOP.com homepage. In both instances, the Obama dig is paired with a 404 error message that states âWhat do Hillary Clinton and this link have in common? Theyâre both dead broke.â Both the Obama and Clinton insults have a distinctly Trumpian vibe, but surely neither is an exercise in Freudian psychological projection.
To top it off, the code itself is apparently itself broken, swapping a single equal sign where there should be two. An honest mistake? Or perhaps the world was never meant to be gifted with these very good jokes at all?
